Face to Face course on Mapping and Performance Monitoring of Agroecosystems from Space | October 18 – 22, 2022 | Kigali, Rwanda | Necessary theoretical and practical knowledge for getting started on monitoring agroecosystems (croplands + rangelands) with satellite EO data.
Vegetation and Drought Monitoring from Space | September 19 – October 14, 2022 | Online course with live-chat | The online course provides the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge on vegetation and drought monitoring based on satellite EO data. It introduces the general concept of EO-based vegetation/drought monitoring, shows the different types of potentially useful EO data, highlights relevant satellite sensors and freely available data products as well as explains different analysis techniques that can be employed for deriving meaningful information from satellite observations.
Hyper-Temporal Mapping of Agro-Ecological Systems | August 25, 2022, 14:00 CET | Online webinar with live-chat | This webinar introduces participants with the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge to map agro-ecological systems at region to country levels (benchmark mapping) for subsequent monitoring using ‘future’ EO-derived imagery.
EO AFRICA Initiative | Tuesday – 24.05.2022, 03:20 PM | Agora SAPIENS, World Conference Center Bonn | The EO AFRICA Initiative will be explained and discussed during the Agora session of the ESA Living Planet Symposium next 24 of May in Bonn. Join us for an interesting roundtable-type discussion in which key representative of the Advisory Board and other African institutions will analyze the progress and define the future development of the EO AFRICA Initiative.
3rd edition of the DLR/ESA open PolInSAR training course | May 2 – July 8, 2022 | Online | Great opportunity to understand multi-parameter SAR data: The DLR-HR PolinSAR course offers a comprehensive training on SAR-based technics (PolSAR, InSAR, PolISAR, TomoSAR). This will be also an excellent opportunity for the users of our Innovation Lab to practice the cloud-based computing skills learnt, with a different platform. Places are limited but members of the EO AFRICA Community are particularly encouraged to apply.
